Vote Expected to Save Georgia Regional

We have an update to a story we told you about last week. Plenty of people are fighting to keep Savannah's Georgia Regional Hospital open. The State Department of Human Resources is trying to cut the budget by $114 million and wanted to close the mental health facility. But people came out to support the hospital at a public hearing last month.

The DHR commissioner is now proposing more budget cuts from other programs, but Georgia Regional won't be one of them, which means the hospital would stay open. The DHR board will vote on the proposal this week.
